Angels often give us an eye for detail...tuning our focus to the things of nature that teach a silent lesson for the day. Hundreds of these messages pass by unseen because we're distracted by thoughts that keep us from fully appreciating what is present in the moment.
Yesterday at the lake, I almost missed this gigantic "adam's apple" snail shell. Oddly out of place, it clung to the back side of the swim at your own risk sign. The largest I've seen, and me with no camera, it seemed like a deliberate angel sign to slow down and watch my words today. Don't let my emotions get swept away, stay silent and centered, and come up higher.
This morning at the lake after feeding the flock of ducks and sandhills, I'd forgotten the snail shell. An angel thought prompted, take a look.
There it was, still clinging to the sign post after a torrential downpour last night.
I smiled, thinking of the large spiral shell on its back. When a snail is born it has a little piece of hard substance, a little
circular spot in the center of its shell. As the snail matures, the shell
naturally adapts by wrapping a soft substance that
hardens into another spiral layer of shell for expansion and protection.
The spiral represents life, and how we keep going round and round, repeating the same old pattern, but we are not the same as we were. We are expanding and gaining strength with each successive rotation. We are becoming greater than we could understand. Our consciousness is coming up higher.
Have a peaceful day with the angels. And, remember, you are never alone. You are in the presence of God's angels who await just a simple nod to come rushing in with such love and gratitude for your precious life. God loves you.
Love and peace,
